I had a lump removed from my lip a few years ago and that experience still makes me angry. Not only did he not anesthetize the way he promised, he hurt me and then let me go home without antibiotics. He didn't respect me as a person and then tried to get an EXTRA $1100 out of me after my insuranec and I both paid. Stay away.

When finding a surgeon for your child (15yr old) yes still a child you want to feel he/she is the most important person in the chair. Dr Bates bedside manner was less than subpar. That's the nicest thing I can say about him. He asked questions and didn't bother to listen to the answer. He cut both my daughter and I off several times. Lockjaw is very scary he might want to remember he's not the one going through it, he's supposed to fix it!!!! That's what he gets paid the big Dallas $$$$ for....

I've been a patient of Dr. Bates for several years. I find him very professional, without making me feel like I'm just another patient. I really like his staff who's always freindly. I also find his prices to be reasonable and fair. I like to research the price of any purchase I make. So based on my personal experience with Dr. Bates I highly recommend him especially if you new to town and looking a good Doctor who knows his stuff.

This is my second time visiting Dr. Bates and both times it has been a phenomenal experience. I personally felt very well taken care of like I was a priority to Dr. Bates as well as his staff.
